Exhibiting at CeBIT underlines the company’s dedication and focus on Europe, and the commitment to innovation and responding to customers needs

Reading (UK) – February 23, 2004 – LANDesk Software, a leader in unified desktop, server and mobile device management solutions today announced the company will be exhibiting at CeBIT 2004 in hall 3, stand A57. LANDesk Software will be demonstrating products and solutions that help simplify and automate IT processes to reduce the costs of systems management and help increase security at the desktop, as well as the server and device level. In addition, several channel partners will be exhibiting in the LANDesk Software booth.

Exhibiting at CeBIT demonstrates the company’s emphasis on worldwide growth and the importance of the European region for the development of its business. The solutions being demonstrated include the award-winning LANDesk® Management Suite 8 and add-on products including LANDesk Server Manager, LANDesk System Manager and LANDesk Patch Manager. The company will also be offering a glimpse into future product direction and development of the LANDesk Management Suite at the show.

Four LANDesk partners will appear on the stand – two German channel partners Magelan and Software Spectrum, Arbyte from Russia and Remedy, a BMC Software company, showing the integration of their Help Desk solution Magic Solutions with the LANDesk Management Suite.

“With our presence at CeBIT we are sending out a clear signal: we expect to drive business in Europe this year, and particularly in Germany with the medium-size business sector,” said Daniel Power, LANDesk Software’s Regional Manager, UK. “CeBIT is an ideal platform for contact with our customers and partners in Europe. LANDesk Software products are sold through resellers, so we want to win additional channel partners that can sell to medium sized as well as larger companies.”

Dieter Zoellner, Director of Services Central and Eastern Europe for Software Spectrum, a LANDesk Software Expert Solution Provider commented, “Two key factors form the basis of our strategic partnership with LANDesk Software: First, the strong software deployment focus that matches our company strategy of Acquire-Access-Manage. Partnering with LANDesk Software gives us the tools to offer automated software package deployment to our customers. The second factor is license management, and without LANDesk Software’s excellent inventory capability it would be impossible to achieve this.”

While many large companies use automatic software distribution tools, they are less prevalent in the medium-sized business sector. According to a recent study from Lünendonk** barely one third of the German companies with fewer than 500 employees have such solutions in use. This percentage is expected to rise within the next two years to more than half. LANDesk Software, in close co-operation with its partners, expects to launch targeted initiatives around cost efficiency and return on investment in 2004 for the medium-size sector including companies with 250 or more employees.

Exhibiting at CeBIT also underlines the continuing success of LANDesk Software. The fourth quarter of 2003 represented its 14th consecutive quarter of operating profitability – beginning back as an Intel Business Unit until September 2002, and then continuing as an independent company. In comparison to the fourth quarter of 2002, the fourth quarter of 2003 saw LANDesk Software achieve a worldwide revenue growth of 88 percent. The outstanding result is based on numerous new clients and good continued relations with existing customers. Moreover, existing and new strategic co-operations with companies such as Intel, Remedy, Unisys, Legend and Touchpaper contributed to the successful quarter.
